Steering Fault?

Just encountered a serious steering problem on my Ph2 172..

Steering whilst moving forward is very clunky and causes the car to 'jump around'..

No jumping when the wheels are straight just when steering left and right?

Power steering, steering rack, driveshaft or cv joint?

:(

on a happy note thats the 1 usefull post u have made EVER lol ;)
 
haha..very true...

did you hit something like a kerb or slide into something..? when mines snapped...the wheel seemed to snap round when turning...

steering rack is something stupid like 160quid from renault...what ever it is..its gonna be pricey..
 
check the top mount also wheel bolts are tight could be the wishbones bsuhes but the racks have been chnaged before due to problems like this

On mine i had this issue, but after replacing the track rod ends the problem disappeared. Could also be a idea to check them.
aye would be cheaper too.. am gony fire some old clothes on n have a look!!!

GPSS just quoted me £245 + vat!!!

Also said there was 5 different racks for these!!

Any idea which 1 is on mine any1?
